FUNDarte proudly presents Flamenco Rave, featuring DORANTES, Daniel Casares, Naike y Paquete, and Rosalía and Raül Refree, in concert on Sunday, March 25th at 6:00 p.m. at Miami Dade County Auditorium
Experience the explosive movement of contemporary flamenco that is currently taking Spain by storm in this day-long festival featuring the most challenging and innovative experiments in freshly updated flamenco expression from the Iberian peninsula. This program features several of Spain’s most celebrated talents in the Flamenco genre: master pianist DORANTES, as well as acclaimed contemporary artists Daniel Casares, Naike y Paquete, vocalist Rosalía and guitarist Raül Refree. These artists are known worldwide for their daring and bold flamenco style, blending the traditional grit and audacity of Flamenco with smooth contemporary influences to create a musical fusion that is hypnotic and mesmerizing, breathtaking and passionate, at once ancient and new.
“Dorantes is passion and intelligence, freedom and versatility. Musical ideas came from him in a natural way, with no restriction but slowly in order, giving us a great, powerful and innovative result.”
Born in 1969 in Seville to a prestigious flamenco family boasting a long line of legendary performers, Dorantes absorbed the roots of flamenco at home. He also studied piano at the Real Conservatorio Superior de Música of Seville from a very young age. Consequently, he has always searched for a synthesis of traditional flamenco, classical and avant-garde music.
Rosalía & Raül Refree
Rising star Rosalía is renowned for her versatile and breathtaking singing; she has worked with Chicuelo, Rocío Márquez and Madrid rapper C. Tangana, and was recently nominated for a Latin Grammy in the “Best New Artist” category. Guitarist Raül Refree, acclaimed for his instrumental experimentation, incorporates his love of flamenco into his own personal style.
Naike y Paquete
Juan José Suarez “Paquete”, an influential force in flamenco guitar in recent decades, joins the stunning vocalist Naike Ponce to recreate some of the most beautiful songs dedicated to women.
A virtuosic guitarist, Daniel Casares presents his acclaimed show Picassares, which pays tribute to his fellow countryman from Malaga, the legendary painter Pablo Picasso. Through this remarkable program, Casares conveys the essence of flamenco, and thanks Picasso, a lover of flamenco and especially the guitar, for the impact his work and genius has had on his music. He is joined by dancer Sergio Aranda and musicians on guitar, violin and percussion.
